The Ball Chair was designed by Eero Aarnio in 1963 and presented at the International Furniture Fair in Cologne in 1966.
It became Aarnio’s international breakthrough. Eero Aarnio has always been fascinated by new materials and round shapes - one of his favourite materials is fibreglass, which gives the chair a free, elastic shape.
The round shell of the Ball Chair is simple yet ingenious, and has often been referred to as a “room in a room”.
The Ball Chair is one of the best-known classics of Finnish design, even though its modernist, futuristic design differs from the natural and minimalist Scandinavian design traditions.
The iconic piece is upholstered with Kvadrat’s fabric in darkgrey, its outside is bright orange...this 1st edition piece is stamped by Asko!
